KIEV, July 13. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said on Monday he had dismissed the country’s Honorary Consul in Turkey Levent Aydin, who was seen in public in a T-shirt with Putin’s portrait, out of principle.

"Levent Aydin has helped many Ukrainian citizens but it was the matter of principle. I took a decision to relieve him of his duties of Ukraine’s Honorary Consul," Klimkin wrote on his Twitter account on Monday. He added that Aydin was a Turkish citizen.

Earlier a number of mass media said Aydin showed up at a sports event wearing a T-shirt with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s photo and a sign reading "Politeness Is Our Everything."
